This was my day. :) I think I did pretty good overall.
it's hard staying on track when I'm home all day w/kiddos. Although I have plenty of healthy stuff around, I have to resist the urge to just grab vi cookies when I want lol, or be snacking on almonds all day. Lol. Although they're not bad, I don't want to mindlessly overeat. It's easy to overeat when we don't track, at least for me it is.
I'm sharing in hopes of showing others that weightloss doesn't have to be boring salads all the time, or plain baked chicken or fish. Lol. EAT REAL FOODS! :D play around with food and find what you love and make it healthier. If it's junk food, portion control and add a whole lot of veggies. Ahha :) It's not easy for me like many may think. I have to work for it. This may seem like a lot of food to many, and it might seem minimal to others. It's enough for me. some days I am hungrier and other days I am less hungry lol. Still, even though food wise it's enough, I would still like to grab that piece of chocolate, buy a starbucks, ice cream, hot cheetos or just - you know eat whatever lol...but I have to choose healthier and when I do I feel so much better and stronger. *plus I feel soo good. I haven't been as tired even with 3 kids. I have energy to spare. Some days are harder though. I do have my hands full and don't have time to do what I'd like some days, but it's not from lack of motivation or from being tired, it's just from not being able to do it while carrying a kiddo and having the others around at all time. :P * I enjoy sharing my daily food log because it keeps me motivated now that I have quite some time to go still. It hold me accountable and helps me stay on track for the most part.
Many of you don't care, and that's understandable, but some of you are looking for ideas of what to eat. Some of you want to see that you're not alone on your journey etc etc..I love when ppl share healthy meals, gives me new recipes to try.
Again, you don't have to read through these long posts lol. They're mostly for those who want to lose weight, get motivated, and for me to look back later on. :) I'm happy to have support from friends. Thank you guys. :*
